Christmas Cookie Swirl Nails | Christmas Cookie Mani Swap 2018

Hi everyone and Merry (almost) Christmas!

I'm feeling extra festive today because this blog post is all about Christmas cookies... You might remember last year that I did a Christmas cookie mani swap with a bunch of other nail bloggers, and this year I was a part of it again!

The amazing Sarah of 25 Sweetpeas pulled this whole thing together and created another amazing e-magazine to enjoy this holiday season. Please check it out here!

If you want to read more about my nail design and cookies, as well as hear more about the magazine, then just keep reading! (Fair warning: this is a photo heavy post... I had too many fun ones to choose from)

Rose Gold Snowflake Nails and butter LONDON Instagram Takeover

Hi everyone!

Today's post is super exciting for me... Today, I am taking over butter LONDON's Instagram Stories for their 8 Days of Deals promotion to talk about their deal on their Guilty Pleasures Ultimate Lacquer Stash!

butter LONDON was kind enough to send me the set and ask me to do a tutorial for their Instagram stories during their promotion! I am so excited to share this with all of you. With some of the polishes in their Guilty Pleasures Stash, I created this glittery rose gold snowflake nail design! I really love how it turned out and I think it is the perfect feminine twist on the typical snowflake design we're seeing float around this time of year.

If you'd like to hear more about butter LONDON's 8 Days of Deals and more about this nail design, then just keep on reading!

butter London Peel-Off Glitter Collection | Live Swatches and Review

Hi everyone!

Today I have a swatch and review for the butter London Peel-Off Glitter Collection.

I love using glitter in my nail art, but I have to admit.... Scrubbing off glitter with acetone and trying to get every speck of glitter off my nails and cuticles after a nail art design is a bit of a hassle. When butter London reached out to me about this collection, I was so excited! It sounded like the perfect solution for me.

Keep on reading to hear what I thought of these polishes and to see my swatch photos/my live swatch video!

Essie Gel Couture Polishes Review | NailsByErin

Hi everyone!

Today I have two swatches from the Essie Gel Couture line. I was recently sent these polishes to review and I cannot believe I haven't tried out the Gel Couture line sooner!

I've been a long-time fan of Essie nail polishes (they were some of the first I ever had) and these are becoming new favorites of mine.

I received the below 8 nail polishes as well as the Platinum Grade top coat.




Overall impressions: these shades are gorgeous, the formulas are smooth and easy to apply, and the two step system seems to really compliment each other. Not to mention, these have the new, flatter and wider Essie brush which makes application a dream!! I am SO excited about their new brush and I think it is a huge improvement.

Now, into the swatches!
